The view over the hill and woods and far far away was great. The pool at the end of March was swimmable temperature wise;it was fine once you had got in. The surrounding area is beautiful. Pals itself is a little gem and an hours drive north will take you to Dali's house and the beautiful coastline around Cadaques. All together a lovely week
